I started as a support worker working within the domiciliary care service, which enabled me to gain valuable experience to became a senior within Croft House residential home. I then had the opportunity at the beginning of 2019 to become a Support Manager within the domiciliary care setting, which was a great opportunity for my own progression.
Our domiciliary care service provides support across Carmarthenshire and Swansea to individuals with learning disabilities, mental health and we also provide personal care. Our goal is to ensure the individuals receive the best support to meet their needs. Our support staff also build up good professional relationships with individuals, their friends and family.
The individuals we support within the community enjoy many activities, trips out, cycling, meals out, events put on by M&D care such as the Summer Party and Winter Ball as well as weekly Art class and choir.
I am passionate about providing a service for the people we support which promotes their independence and achievements in the everyday activities they undertake. Every day is varied at M&D and I have been fortunate to gain exposure to development opportunities and I am thoroughly supported in my role.
